Gamecocks track brings home third at 3AA meet

Compiling 123 points in a highly competitive meet, the SCHS Gamecock track team of Kenny Sanders brought home a third-place finish from the Region 3AA track meet held at Laney High School April 16 and 17.
Several Roosters now will compete in the “sectional” meet Saturday at Greater Atlanta Christian.
Unlike the girls meet that was truly dominated by host Laney, the boys meet had a field of four (of the seven total) teams that were very competitive for the title.
In maybe the lone sport in which East Laurens has been very competitive all school year long, the Falcons brought home the 3AA championship trophy with a total of 153 points.
A close second was Laney with 145, but also in the mix were SCHS with 123 and Westside with 115. Bringing up the end were Dublin (30), Josey (22), and Johnson (12). Harlem does not compete in track.
Amazingly, the Red and White accumulated their points with the help of only two first-place finishes, but there were eight seconds and another three thirds. Points are awarded on the basis of 10, 8, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, and 1 for first through eighth place, respectively.
As far as first place finishes, Bryce Johnson successfully defended his 2013 discus title with a throw of 137-01. The senior also was runner-up in the event in 2012.
Tyler Williams picked up the other first place with a leap of 41-02 in the triple jump.
Short as the list of gold medals is, the list of silvers is certainly long and worth 64 of the teams points. Those seconds went to Williams in both the 200 and the long jump; Quan Smith in the 100; Richmond Whitfield in both the shot and the discus (giving SCHS a one and two in the event); Josh Kerson in the 110 hurdles; and Chandler Rigdon in the 300 hurdles. The short relay team of Tavarious Johnson, Desmond White, Smith, and Kerson also took second.
Thirds went to the long relay team of PJ Daughtry, Malachi Roberts, Chandler Rigdon, and Williams; Smith in the 200; and Rashad Hughley in the triple jump.
Others gaining points were White in the 100 (4th); Daughtry in the 400 (5th); Roberts in the 800 (5th); and the high jump (8th); Billy McCord in the 3200 (6th); Rigdon in the 110 hurdles (7th); and Hughley in the high jump (7th).
All participants who finished in the top four advance to the sectionals this weekend.
